Granny I love em'! really well done man!
Snootchy awesome work! Really hope you don't get ill, that would suck, It's been awesome working with all of you as well!!!!
So if its cool with everyone, I'll finalize the images (add unified borders that sort of thing.) and name and submit everything on time. If your cool with that just upload your portraits here (make sure you state there finales), and as big as you can thanks.
Thanks again guys, this has been awesome... and a needed distraction!
excellent work guys--we've all improved quite a bit!!!
That's fine with me matt---it's really helpful actually if you don't mind finalizing and submitting. school starts for me that day so it will be hectic.
Hi guys, i managed to pick up someone's network in my apartment.
I'll have evil done and posted by tonight
but i'm a butt munch and left my finished copy of the good queen at home D: *slams head repeatedly
i had fixed her up quite a bit but oh well. So Matt---The finished queen is the last one I posted. (sorry about that guys. bad hala )
anyway, lovely work guys--i'm glad we pushed ourselves pretty hard
laptop kept overheating yesterday. I'm almost done now--just working on the background---anyone know how to improve color profile on shitty monitor? or is it just shitty monitor and you gotta suck it up and deal with it? I can't see things right on here x.x
greetings from the ghetto D: (i haven't slept since I got here because I'm paranoid about being robbed/raped. my screen has dents from someone trying to pry it open D: )
anyway, any help on the monitor/color settings would be great--i'm on a really crappy LCD laptop monitor.
Oh sorry Larissa, I wish I could help but I'm terrible with monitors (I usually just start playing with the setting til it melts into a huge glowing mess) But maybe try asking a question in one of the help forums? Even some of the ones here a good... and your sure to get a quick response if you post in the lounge.
God your new living situation sounds a little grim, but I'm sure you can look after yourself. And is not, get a gun or a dog... or a bear... Or get a dog with a gun to ride a bear...?
And thanks a lot Peetaer as well!
You guys are awesome, thanks so much for letting me participate!
YEAH THANKS PEETAER AN HALA SOUNDS LIKE MY OLD APARTMENT JUST REMEBER YOU ROCK AN YER A UFC STREET FIGHTER I DUN KNOW HOW TO FIXERED THE MONITOR BUT JUST DO YER BEST AN IT WILL WERK OUT CAUSE YOU GOT HALA MAGIX an THANKS JAILHOUSE FOR ROCK I DUN CARE ABOUT COMPOTION IN THE SENSE OF THIS QUIESTION BUT IS SNOOTCHY OKZ IM WORRIED ?
Cheers Granny, you ROCK!
Playing with ideas for the finale image.
working with some logo stuff from before, was thinking about having two designs (one good, one evil) and having appropriate chess pieces in the center?
Also I think we need to asign class's as well, (I don't think King or bishop count as class's do they?).
All the best!
Hala: glad you moved in ok! bummer fear of the hood =( as for the color calibration not sure if it'll help a whole lot to color calibrate, cuz the color gamut in a laptop lcd is pretty small range and the brightness and contrast levels are pretty low since they use tn panels, i think it should be alright regardless since values are relative, just the colors might not come out the way you wanted to; but just post what u got and that way others can give u feedback as to what the colors look like
matt: ooh awesome job on the template, i really like it and works well with what we are going for, big thanks for doing that and putting the whole thing together!
granny: haha i'm good man, well doped up on medicine, hard to concentrate on sketch but chipping away at it, thanks dood for the concern! any updates on finals?
sorry all, been a bit siick and taking meds so imma bit not clear headed, but here's my final for the good version of the demonstress succubus and what i have so far on the bad version; matt i'll try and have the bad one done by early afternoon tomorrow and also send u the write ups for my characters, thanks again for putting it altogether, y'all are the shizznizz!

I LOVE that border and logo matt. fuck. you should take my spot in college and be a graphic designer.
DON"T FORGET YOUR WRITE UP GUYS-----YOU NEED TO SUBMIT A SUMMARY OF YOUR CHARACTER(S) AS WELL.
Here is my bad queen. if you need a bigger size let me know matt.
I feel like this is the most uncreative thing i've ever made :/ If we had more time I'd totally drop her and redesign her.
Please let me know if something looks terribly wonky with the colors. Other than that I know there are a ton of mistakes, i managed my time poorly on this one.
Other than that you guys are totally looking FRKN AWESOMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
WE ROCK OK!!!!!! I DON"T CARE IF WE STILL LOOK LIKE NOOBS COMPARED TO SOME OF THE PROS COMPETING, Y'ALL STILL PROS IN MY BOOK CUZ YALLLLLL ROCK SO DAMN HARD!!!
I think we all learned a lot and I see improvement in all of us so imo, we got a lot out of this.
As leader I feel obligated to give you guys a mushy conclusion speech:
MAN I LOVE YOU GUYS, STAY AWESOME 4EVARRRRRR!!!! this was a lot of fun (and frustration). I hope that if team chow comes around again ever we should try it again since we will have a bit more experience now. It was really cool to see you all push yourselves to your highest level to see what a "finished" piece could really be. I think our winter theme too forced us to learn how to do different things and use diff. techniques to get there. Im proud of yall, you should be too.
Cuz no team, no matter how talented,
ROCKS AS HARD AS CHONYID BARDO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!
Well done all yall. It's been real entertaining to watch the painting development, Spect blasting his arm, Hala moves to the ghetto, Snoochy experimenting with the meds from work. Matty, thank goodness your a rock.
Lol Thanks jig!! We wouldn't be team chonyid bardo if we weren't mostly crazy
MATT---The chess titles are just names for the characters--there class is still determined by you--for instance I had the queen,but her class is a mage. Your king could be a brawler for example but he's still called the King.
Really cool work all around guys, it was fun to watch
One last crit: @snootchy, on the one you're working on remember reflected light on her dark side! There's lit environment behind her which would slightly illuminate her back, which would also help separate her from the darkness a bit.
Wow loooks great Hala! But some of those branches are a bit distracting, so maye fade some of the further ones back. This will also help with depth! LOve it!
Snootchy this is awesome!!!! Love the lighting, and I think Jasons right as well!
Yep so if everyone wants to put there write ups here, I'll do the rest!
ANd If you don't want to write up the character briefs, I'm pretty sure I know the characters by now, so I' could do them easily!!
LOL, looks like were going to have lots of mages... so If you could maaaaaaaaybe think of another class (hala) that would help
Granny:-- the two characters on the last page, are they the finales? If so is there anyway you could post them bigger? Again, no worries if you can't.
ANd Finley, if its fine with everyone, I'm going to write up the teams progress report. We need a brief list of what everyone did, and I don't mind doing it!
We fucking rock!!!!!!!!!
yeah i thot we discussed the mage issue a while back but i could be wrong..kind of hard to change that now since she is holding a staff in both images.
I guess she will be a medic then?
if i find time tonight i will edit some of the branches, and make some alterations to my character so it's clear she's a medic.
Thanks for opting to do the progress report matt!
haha all yall RRRRRRRROCCCKKKKKKKKKKK AN THANKS AGAIN SSOOOOOOOOO MUCH I HAD SOOOOOOOOOOMUCH FUN THANKS FOR THE PEOPLE THAT SUPPORTED US TOO CAUSE THEY ROOCKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!
AHH SORRY JAIL HOUSE I COULD BARLEY GET THE EVIL TO LOAD AS IT IS ON THE SITE ITS LIKE 506 KB OR SOMETHING I DUN KNOW HOW THAT STUFF WORKS REALLY
IM NOT TO SURE WHAT TO SAY ABOUT THE WRITE UP IM AH NOT SOO GOOD AT AH WRITE UPS BUT I DO KNOW WE ALL GAVE OUR BEST AN LEARNED ALOT AN IM PROUD OF ALL YALLS AN HONORED TO BE APART OF ROCK WE ARE WIN!!!!!!!! I GOT WAY MORE THAN JUST LEARNING ABOUT ART AN TEAM WORK I GOT A STRONG BOND WITH AN AMAZING BUNCH OF TROUBLEMAKERS
I HOPE WE STILL TALK TO EACH OTHER WHEN WE'RE AT THE RETIREMENT HOME BUT EVEN IF WE NEVER CROSSED PATHS AGAIN YALL WOULD ALWAYS BE APART OF WHO I AM THANKS ....
heya's here ya go matty, sorry for the lateness, but finally finished! wish i had more time to work on both but these'll have to do; i'll send you my write ups tomorrow after work or during lunchtime at work. oh yea also i have file sizes bigger if you need, actually i shrunk the images about 30%.

Hey Mattehhhh I will have my write up for you later this afternoon (ur in NZ, you'll prolly still be asleep by the time i upload it xD) I won't have a chance to make corrections to my work i'm so sorry
anyway, our team rocks, it was so much fun working with you guys, I guess it's back to stalking you all on seperate sketchbook threads now xD
And thanks to everyone who visited and critiqued!
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE
thanks all for the great support and also best of luck on the rest of the day to all the other teams competing in chow!!
hey Matt, was wondering if I would have time to work on my character sketches after work for like an hour or so, I normally get off at 7pm eastern time in US? If not, I'm ok with submitting the two I posted...
Great to have werked wif y'all!!
i'm most likely gonna come back and edit it
just throwing it down before i forget.
I'm trying to make it clear that her personality is vain, boastful, and petty.
While her King and her people are fighting on the front lines, Alexandra moves through the castle defenses and the thick forest trees, healing and buffing her fellow war mates. Feeling the need to appear regal and superior at all times; her armor is rather grandeur and decorative. She is a lady to the finest degree--If an enemy's blood happens to stain her skirt or shoes, she will run to her King whining and crying like a child until he adequately dismembers the enemy's body for such a sin. Her Childish antics often annoy people, but it is what keeps her on her toes, moving swiftly from one wounded warrior to the next, evading many attacks and messes. This capability however also leads her to be quite boastful. Afterall, there are not many people who can brag about healing a thousand soldiers during a bloody battle while keeping their appearance perfect and pristine.
Snootchy your pieces are stunning man--awesome work you pumped out!! The details in them really shine!
Matt your pieces look very coherent and I love the simplicity of them, they definitely look like they are from the same story! Great job!! (The good bishop is my favorite)
Granny your pieces rock cuz they were made from you and you are the god of rock--I also love the idea of riding dinos and gorillas!!! Really nice too to see you push your pieces--just like the amazon woman when u pushed her to a finished, you really improved with these!!!
-The Human Medic-

Feeling the need to appear regal and superior at all times; her armor is rather grandeur and decorative. She is a lady to the finest degree; decked in fur and layers; elegant and refined. However she is quite petty with keeping her appearence--If an enemy's blood happens to stain her skirt or shoes, she will run to her King whining and crying like a child until he adequately dismembers the enemy's body for such a sin.

I'm excited and nervous at the same time over this. Competitions are always so nerve wracking!
Again--we rock guys.
Even if we're not the best we can be YET as artist (we still got room to grow), we are the best team.
We got the best energy
the most crack *cough* i meant candy
and had the most fun.
I won't even post our MSN convos cuz they are too much for CA to handle xD
I don't care what anyone else says
I firmly believe we're the best team cuz we work together well
and dat's what it's all 'bout!!!!
